    Course Summary

    The University of Heriot-Watt’s Bachelor of Business Administration program aims to balance the study of Business Administration in a general, holistic sense with studies aimed specifically at start-ups, innovation and growing your own business.

    You’ll learn key management skills, the most important elements of accounting and economics, and everything you’ll need to know about finance to make a small operation or business unit thrive and grow in nearly any financial context.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    This course is delivered over 4 years for full time students.

    Year 1

    The first year of Heriot-Watt’s BBA program includes 8 taught modules. 7 are mandatory ‘core’ modules, but one can be selected from a list of electives.

    Year 1 Core Modules:

    • Elective

    Year 2

    You will only have one core module in your second year – Operations Management.

    The rest of your credit hours will be selected from Optional or Elective modules from topics like Commercial Law, Organisational Behaviour, Marketing or Human Resources Management.  In total you’ll have five optional and tho elective modules to select.

    Year 3

    Similarly, there will only be two core modules in year 3, allowing you to build your own unique areas of specialty with optional and elective modules. You must choose four optional modules and 2 elective modules in year 3.

    • Strategic Management

    Year 4

    In year 4 you will only have one core module – International Business. You will select four optional modules and one elective module, though. You will spend a great deal of time during both semesters writing your dissertation, the equivalent of a single module each semester.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Heriot-Watt relies on quite a few different learning and teaching methods during this four year BBA Course. You will of course have some modules taught almost exclusively as lectures and tutorials, graded by semester exams. However, you will also have a series of projects and workshops. You will even have a few sessions dedicated to ensuring that you are familiar with all of the University of Heriot-Watt’s numerous support services.

    Heriot-Watt’s BBA program is designed with employability in mind, so it is no surprise that 83% of BBA program graduates are in work or advanced study programs within six months of receiving their degrees. Moreover, 71% of those in work have achieved either managerial or professional positions in the same period of time. The average yearly salary for graduates is £21,000, some 5% higher than graduates of similar courses.
